What Is The Best Way Of Gaining Control With A GMB Page That Is Being Managed By An Ex-Partner With Embezzlement Issues?

By April

 

In episode 256 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about the best way of gaining control with a GMB page that is being managed by an ex-partner with embezzlement issues.

The exact question was:

Its been a while. Have been swamped appliyng the knowledge from your incredible, money produsing courses! Got time for Quick advice? Got a new client whose GMB is controlled by an ex-partner with whom they parted ways (embezzlement charges)… What, in your opinion, would be the best way to get control over their GMB? Contacting their ex-partner is not an option. It does not have much value at this time. Just 3-4 positive reviews, with one negative that ex-partner left. Is there a way to just cancel it and start fresh? Any negative effect from that? They have moved into a different unit (same building) and kept same number. Thank you in advance! //Jenia

How Can You Make Individual Home Listings Appear Higher In The SERPs For A Client Website?

By April

In episode 256 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if it is possible to make individual home listings appear higher in SERPs for a client website.

The exact question was:

Hey guys, a real estate client asked me about what we can do to make individual home listings appear higher in the SERPs for our website. Apparently in his city it's popular for people to search for a home by its address, like “”123 Main Street.”” The idea is that his page for 123 Main Street would appear on top of rival brokerages', even though they're the same home. What could I do to make the client's home listing pages rank higher for specific addresses?

Would It Be Possible To Outrank Major Directory Sites Since They Don’t Have Strong On-Page SEO For Each Location?

By April

In episode 254 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if it is possible to outrank major directory sites since they don't have strong on-page SEO for each location.

The exact question was:

Hi Guys, . . . Thank you VERY much again for your Hump Day help (smile) . . . I know you've said that local organic seo is harder now mainly because of the major local Directories dominating the first page, but, if you wanted to rank your own multi-location local Directory site with strong on-page seo as well as “”normal”” off-page seo, would it be possible to outrank the major Directly sites since they may not have strong on-page seo for each location and may or may not do extensive off-page seo either?

How Do We Know If Our Ranking Efforts Have An Impact On Moving The Listing Closer In The 3-Pack?

By April

In episode 253 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked how to know if our ranking efforts have an impact on moving the listing closer to the 3-pack.

The exact question was:

By the way, you mentioned previously that the order of the GMB listings that show up after you click “”More Places”” at the bottom of the 3-Pack is primarily based on their proximity to the searcher and not as much on their “”ranking signals””, but if “”ranking signals”” are a significant factor in getting into the 3-Pack, why isn't it the same for the listings that aren't in the 3-Pack, and how do we check if our ranking efforts are having any impact on moving the listing closer to being in the 3-Pack? . . . Thanks again
